Allied Movie Review:
The movie lacks in many places. It is though enjoyable but still the sluggish pace is what makes it bit boring. Moreover, there is not a solid foundation for romance. For a movie like Allied, it was important that they focus more on central romance but the love between two characters Max and Marianne fails to produce that real sparks.
This was all about the romance. Now if we move to action, then first of all you have to wait a lot for it. And even the action lacks emotional investment. But here we have to praise Cotillard for covering up beautifully on all the occasions leaving us astounded and sometimes leaving us in a doubt about her loyalty. The move was shot perfectly. There are colors representing the stylish period of time. Production designer Gary Freeman brings perfect details in the film. There is only one place when you feel it is all artificial when it is nighttime air raids going on in London.

“The Best Example of VFX: Allied”
Allied is a World War II thriller and to describe its VFX, you just have to know that 776 out of the total 954 shots contain effects. This might not be the first time that a movie has used this much VFX but the thing is, today movies are relying heavily on VFX, more than the audience can even imagine.
Robert Zemeckis was good enough to stay with the budget of $85 million and that is why rather than taking his crew to remote areas like Sahara for shooting, he preferred VFX.Allied,
